Bored to Hell With Burgers

August 23, 2012 // Posted in Good Food, Life  

The idea of one more burger for lunch is making me just sick. When did hamburgers become the only lunch choice for people who work 9 to 5? Doesn’t anybody go out to a full service restaurant and just order a real meal and enjoy a proper lunch any more?

When I was a kid, my dad used to invite the family out to lunch with him a couple of times every month. It was always exciting to get dressed up pretty and go to his office. We were paraded around the building and introduced to new employees and expected to exchange pleasantries with the employees we already knew.

Then we went to a nice restaurant for a proper meal. We were given menus and allowed to choose whatever we wanted to order. The only catch was that we were expected to eat the whole thing, and if we couldn’t finish the meal, it was put in a box and taken home and that was our next dinner. That would not have meant as much to any of us if all we did was drive through a fast food joint and get a hamburger.
